          Beta - Quenching

---The Final Forge period has concluded for the Castle Lands Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for BETA Play. After an extended period of time in BETA and once all quirks and issues have been resolved, the map will be put into Full Play (barring any Lack vetoes).

Conquer Club, enjoy!

Castle Lands' future

Postby Lupo on Thu May 28, 2009 5:44 am

Hello my friends!

I would like to congratulate with you for this nice map and the good and hard job you did.

I am really sorry about not having had enough time to read the whole 20 pages discussion about this map, so I apologize in advance if I will talk about something you're already discussed here before.

Probably, I am in late to make any kind suggestion, anyway I try to point out the following ones:


-> Personally, I believe that between the four external continents, the MOUNTAINS be the better ones to start with:

- FORESTS (5 territories, 3 borders, +3 bonus)

- MOUNTAINS (6 territories, 3 borders, +4 bonus)

- FIELDS + Savannah (8 territories, 3 borders, +5 bonus)

- DESERTS + Peak (8 territories, 3 borders, +5 bonus)


-> I would like to typify the four external continents:

- the FORESTS, inserting 1 or more rivers crossing the continent, making these waterways the only possible path to move troops across its territories;

(NOTE: eventually some of this rivers could have their wellsprings in the adjacent MOUNTAINS)

- the MOUNTAINS, inserting 1 or more extra neutral territories and 1 way borders, in order to penalize the movement inside this continent;

- the FIELDS, inserting some production bonus, similar to the "Age Of Merchants" map;

- the DESERTS, inserting a central oasis bonus and around it setting some territories with negative bonuses, something similar (on a smaller scale) to the "Oasis" map.


-> About the graphics, it would be very cool if you used perspective and someone with enough skills started to make a draft of this map.


Well, I know I am asking so much and too in late with map foundry process, but I hope you could keep this suggestion for your future update or re-make.

thank you for your attention,

Lupo
